Last but not least to my Co-Producer Werner Strähl; there’s more to come in 2020!
Our annual and 3rd meeting took this time place in Brig/Canton Valais. We met at a restaurant and after lunch we networked about new ideas how to make us more visible. So there will be an anthology of about 20 authors of our association, the release will probably be early summer 2020! Many thanks to the founder, Patricia Aschillier, for keeping up our „club“!!
Together with Susanne Gantner, Giovito Russo & Daniel Woodtli, we entertained the audience at theater ONO in Bern. Susanne read cutouts of her thriller „One Gloria to die for (Ein Gloria zum Sterben)“, Giovito poetries of „No advertising, please!(Keine Werbung, prego!) and me cutouts of „Haze over Durban (Nebel über Durban). Daniel Woodtli underlined our reading with his trumpet and some other strange instruments I’m not able to define! All in all it was a very good evening and as the Bernese use to say „Es het gfägt!“ (It has swept!). Did you know, that in Bern is used to talk Matten-English?

Grazie mille Dir. Nicola Conforti & Salvatore Conforti, per il vostro sostegno in tutti questi anni!

On 22nd of May 19 was the official read out day all over Switzerland, I did my read out as volunteer in the role of a fairy tale auntie one week before. I enjoyed reading Trudi Gerster’s and Sandy Jud’s fairy tales. The kids did a great job, were curious and told me about their young life. I told the kids to be always attentive to what teachers explain and read a lot, because it’s important for their growth.
Many thanks to Maria Dea Covella @ Primary School Olten Bifang, Joana Studer & Michelle von Däniken @ Primary School Zofingen, Jasmin Jaggi @ nursery Kita Koalabär Aarau Rohr & your pupils and toddlers for the warm welcome! Your Thank-You with shiny little eyes was the best applause for me!!!
On this day I’ll do my volounteering in the name of my employeer, as a fairy godmother. I’ll be reading at various nurseries and primary schools, reading out from Trudi Gerster’s „Swiss Fairytales“ and Sandy Jud’s “ Für Dich mein Schatz hat es auch noch Platz“. For safety reasons not mentioned where the readings will took place, thanks for your comprehension.
